With elegantthemes, can i just pay the membership fee for 1 year, download the themes i like and then stop paying the fee every year, or should i keep paying the fee if i want to keep using the theme, year after year?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Please take a look at the site's TOS for that.

Most sites allow you to flat out purchase the theme without monthly use fees. Most of the time it is just a fee to access the site and download .

Sort of.  There is a license option that allows you to download unlimited themes for use on unlimited sites.  If you get that option, then you are free to do as you ask and cancel but the flip side of that is you will not get access to new themes or new versions of existing themes when the license runs out.  

If these are themes for one site only, there is a cheaper option to just buy a theme or two with a license for the one domain only.

Yup. Found this in their FAQs:

If I cancel my membership after the first year, can I still use the themes I've already downloaded?

Yes, you do not need to have an active membership to use themes that were released when you were a paying member. Cancellation of your subscription merely revokes access to the member's area, and to all future theme releases.
